The Indian Hickman Trail is a very difficult 6.2 mile hike, horseback ride or backcountry ski trail. It is accessible only from the east side of the Stansbury Mountains. This trail offers views of Skull Valley, the Indian Reservation, and Cedar Mountain. You can hike down the trail to the Forest
Service Boundary, but it has been requested that you do not enter the Indian Reservation (from the west side of the Stansbury Mountains). This route has been maintained as a primitive trail.
Dogs and horses are allowed in the Stansbury Mountain Range. Please keep your dog leashed at all times at all developed areas and parking lots.

Head west about 1/4 mile to the first peak where the trail begins.
